Carol W Overton [Redacted by Editor] does not abide by the United States Consitution and completely ignores due process. There needs to be term limits for Judges, so that this [Redacted] stops and justice is for all not just whoever this [redacted] Judge feels like it. Carol W Overton needs to be Impeached for [redacted] Carol W Overton should never have been allowed on the bench as a Judge, as she is partial to whoever she feels like it.

This judge did not allow me to get a copy of a declaration signed by my own son and when I begged for a copy, Judge Carol Overton had ran to her chamber and her clerks in the court room was surprised of her conduct of running out to her chamber depriving me of a copy.

Judge Carol Overton is a high level Fraud, Jewish Racist, who together with her crime partner Attorney Rothbard involved in the organised satanic pedophile crime syndicate. My name is Nina Sidorova and I am a President of the Northern California Tenant Association who submitted several detailed complaints and reports about fraud Overton, who also is a thief of court documents, hater and racist. I claimed and supported my statement that Fraud criminal Overton was involved in murders of several tenants of the City of Mountain View!

If I could give Judge Carol Weinstein Overton a negative zero I would! She should beyond a shadow of a doubt be removed! She is bias, evil, satanic, and wicket. She has a horrible background! Remember we are dealing with the JEWdicial system, She needs to be dragged from the bench along with her counterparts namely Corrupt Attorney Todd Rothbard and Judge Zayner they should have been barred and recalled along with Aaron Persky! She is systematically voted in with no opposition and does whatever the attorneys want her to do! It’s time for her to bounce and be prosecuted for what she is knowingly and willingly doing to innocent people! She is a fake, a phony, and a fraud period!

Carol Overton is a corrupt Judge and does should not be judging any case.
Carol Overton pretends she is on one side or the other but it is clear that she is not impartial at all and makes up her mind way before knowing and listening to all the facts. Carol Overton chooses favorites and communicates with parties off the record against the rules. Basically, Carol Overton just does whatever she feels like it and ignores all due process.

Judge Carol Overton has shown bias and little impartiality in a Civil Case where she is allowing a person who constantly calls, emails and files frivolous complaints ending in Judge Overton making unfair decisions where due process is simply thrown to the side.

The only positive thing I can say is that Judge Overton was fair in admonishing both sides in my trial. But as I took the stand, I could see her bench. It was a mess. She had papers turned upside down, she was drawing pictures and using a white out pen to erase parts of the drawings. She zeroed in on some rather petty issues and from my perspective didn't demonstrate much empathy or understanding for what it's like to live outside of her court room. She also barked at her clerks, who were as equally as confused as the rest of us due to the judge's unclear instructions. What an embarrassment to judges and a waste of my tax payer money.

If I could rate "Her Honor" with less than one star I would......she needs to be reminded constantly of the real world of the law. It might be helpful to her to spend some time outside of court to see what Plaintiff's and Defendent's lives are like with her judgements. Her court manners leave much to be desired, does not take positive criticism well. There is a reason for her low rating, and yes she does bite!

Plan to be in Judge Overton's courtroom for a long time. Judge's calendar and clerk are often out of control. Judge is very biased against pro-per and defendants. Judge is very difficult to work with and will not give counsel any flexibility or time, unless you are a regular appearing attorney.

She is the worst Judge. She doesnot allow me to finish my statements. She is not looking at the evidences but more concerned about the future of the defendant(man). My whole lifestyle is completed altered and I hope the Judge realizes how Her decisions affect the Plaintiff's life on a daily basis.

Actually is a nice person. Was a much better criminal court judge than civil judge. Now on Civil Bench, always interrupting while counsel are trying to argue their case or make a point; seems to lean towards to underdog and especially In Pro Per Parties. Bends over backwards to make them happy. Very gullible. Never practiced on her own; always worked a government job. Lacks the everyday understanding of what attorneys have to go through to deal with In Pro Per parties who owe money and simply lie in court and to everyone else. Needs vast improvement.
